Opera Software has introduced Opera 10.60, claiming its new browser is the fastest around and up to 50 percent faster than the previous version. (They also claim the previous version was the fastest browser on Earth.)
The browser employs up-to-date open standards, adds new features, improved security and is more stable than before.
Geolocation is one of the built-in features, so your current position can be set on the map when using maps, though you can switch this feature off.
Opera is also first to market in fielding the open WebM format that gives you optimized video right in the browser on all platforms. Support for offline applications also appears in this release.
The Opera Turbo compresses the data going over your connection up to a factor of two or more, for those congested connections at cafés or a mobile connection at the summerhouse.
Opera 10.60 is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux, and it is available free of charge. Opera 10.60 browser can be downloaded from Opera website.
